Format: Paperback
With a perfect selection and analysis of doccuments, Dr Noakes has shown exactly how the NSDAP controlled its march to power. Not only is this a marvelous selection of primary resources for any student of the period, but the analysis is sharp and incisive, aiding the reader in his or her interpretation of the material. From the early post war years of its inception, through the Munich Putsch and the 1920's, we can see the struggling NSDAP learning how to be a political force. The growth of the SA, challenges to Hitler, and the constant threads of militarism, nationalism and anti-semitism can be seen throughout the sources, culminating in the assumtion to power by Hitler as the Fuhrer of the German nation. This volume is a worthy starting point of a great series. It is necessary to understand what happened before the NSDAP came to power, in order to comprehend how and why they did what we now consider some of the greatest crimes in history. Noakes and Pridham have greatly aided our understanding of a contradictory and sometimes nonsensical movement

Format: Paperback
This volume is the first in a series of four and contains 136 documents in English translation, a mixture including political party documents, newspaper articles, letters, diaries and memoirs. The documents cover the period from the founding of the Nazi Party in 1919 up to the immediate aftermath of the Night of the Long Knives on June 30, 1934 and the purge of the S.A.

There are four main chapters; one, from the founding of the Nazi Party to the Beer Hall Putsch in November 1923; two, the creation of a nationwide party organization from 1924 to 1928 inclusive; three, the emergence of Nazism as a mass movement from 1928 to 1933 inclusive and four, the struggle for and seizure of power covering the period from 1930 to 1933-34.

The document texts are linked by a succinct, detailed and very readable commentary text and preceded by an introductory chapter on the ideological roots of Nazism and the radical right-wing völkisch movement in Germany.

All references to the sources of documents quoted are listed at the back of the volume, enabling readers who so wish to investigate further.

The author achieves a very well-balanced collection of documents.

This document collection should enable readers to build on solid evidence a strong foundation for understanding the history of Germany and the Nazis from 1919 to 1934. This book and the rest of the series is an excellent accompaniment for any study of this subject and it is very well worth using.

This is the first volume in an exemplary series of books by Noakes and Pridham that should satisfy the needs of almost anyone interested in the realities of the Third Reich.
The book is made up of translations of original documents, from newspaper reports to song lyrics, speeches to internal party memos. As such, it is a rich source of evidence of the brutality and self-mythologising stupidity of the Nazis, not to mention their warped understanding of race and culture. Reading this, one is amazed that the Germans could fall for such a bunch of thick-necked, thick-headed bullies. This amazement is dispelled by the writers' commentary, which is a course in Imperial German and Weimar history in itself.
This book and the others in the series are also excellent teaching tools for lessons on the nature of history and the interpretation of historical sources.
A very useful series for readers whose interest in the period has been whetted by Ian Kershaw's Hitler biographies and Michael Burleigh's history of the Third Reich.
